Now they call it climate disruption, and right on cue, the little parrot calls it climate disruption.”

“Harry Reid arrived in Washington DC wearing an old 2nd-hand suit.

Now he's a multi-millionaire.”

rfinkels on Jun 1, 2014 at 00:46:03

“The arch conservative National Review itself pegged Harry Reid's new worth when he entered the Nevada Legislature in 1982 at 1 to 1.5 million dollars and his current net worth a third of a century later at 3 to 10 million. So if he went from 1.5 million to 3 million in THIRTY+ years that means it took him a third of a century to double his worth.........and you are considering that to be somehow unusual. You may have a point as that shows a terribly lackluster investment strategy.”

“Actually, he tells Holder (head of the Justice Dept), then Holder tells Michele M. Leonhart, (Director of DEA) who promptly does as she pleases. This is the same person who in testimony to Congress refused to admit that marijuana was not as harmful as cocaine or heroin. Why doesn't Obama fire her you ask? Because this is an appointed position with Senatorial consent and traditionally the person must officially resign and she has no intention of doing so. She can be replaced by the next President however.”
